12oz bottle (bottled on 6/11/14) - nose is grapefruit. Sip adds a malty backbone. OK, OK. I’m disappointed by this. All of the others I’ve tried from North Peak have been awesome. I guess I raised the bar too high or maybe Jolly Pumpkin can’t brew very well, or both or something else or a combination. Wife loves it and she can have it. Just checked the date - that might be why this is off.

Draft at Dutch’s in August 2014 from notes. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice mix of resiny, citrus, floral hops, toasted bready malts, a splash of caramel, moderate bitterness, this was definitely better than expected.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear light medium amber with a generous frothy white head, constellations of lace. Taste is big-bodied dark fruit and malt that includes biscuit and mown hay in the palate before strong alcohol shows up at the finish. Nicely balanced, good malt and good hop presence. A solid winner.

On draught in a tulip. Nose is nice mix of fruity and grassy hops. Easy to drink mix of great hop flavors throughout, would not say this is wickedly bitter, bit fairly so.

It poured an amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of spicy hops, some malts and floral notes. The taste was of a good malt base, lots of hops, some citrus, tasty florals and a hint of grass. Very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a hazy, murky amber with a small white head. Aroma is fruity hop with a decent caramel malt. Flavor is super sweet caramel malt with a decent hoppy backbone. Finish leaves equal hop resin and sweet malt on the tongue. Decent strong/IPA ale. A bit sweet and thick but has enough hop presence to make this appealing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured clear copper with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop aroma. Medium to abundant body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Surpassed my expectations.
